2 sisters

Erin's been really interested in family relationships lately.  With Allison's birth and having grandparents and other family in town, it's been fun trying to help her understand how we're all related.  Her favorites are her brother and sister though.  lol

So yesterday in the car, she announced that she had 2 sisters.

I said "Yes, you do have 2 sisters.  Who are your sisters Erin?"

"Baby Allison!" she squealed.  She loves her baby sister.

"Yep," I answered, "Who else?"

She paused for a second.  "Not Patrick," she said, thinking, "He's my brother."

"It's true.  So who is your other sister?"

"Um..."  she frowned for a second, and then her eyes went wide. "Baby Cora!"

I love that she is aware of her big sister.  I wish they could have grown up together, but the best I can do for Cora is have her siblings know who she is, right?
